Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are preparing to conduct raids beginning on Sunday July 14th, to arrest thousands of illegal immigrants across the U.S. just weeks after President Trump announced that he was delaying the operation.
The ICE agents will target at least 2,000 immigrants whose deportations have already been ordered, a New York Times report said, citing one former and two current Department of Homeland Security officials.
Asked for comment, an ICE spokesman would not offer specific details, citing “law-enforcement sensitivities and the safety and security of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement personnel.”
“As always, ICE prioritizes the arrest and removal of unlawfully present aliens who pose a threat to national security, public safety and border security. … However, all of those in violation of the immigration laws may be subject to immigration arrest, detention and – if found removable by final order – removal from the United States,” the spokesman said.
The raids will include “collateral” deportations, which means illegal immigrants at the scene of the raid who are not the target of the raid could be detained too.
